Finding the right photographer can be difficult, especially when you’re trying to involve multiple people or small children. I’ve discovered that a good fit for us is a photographer who can direct the shoot. They know what kind of shots you desire and what outcome you’re hoping for if you’ve discussed it with them previously. If you’re going to invest in hiring a professional, I would send them examples of what style you’re looking to achieve or even just have a conversation with them about it beforehand. It is so disappointing to pay for a product you’re not happy with, especially something as special as family pictures.
